Description

The ReGeneration Academy on Web Apps UI/UX Design & Development, powered by Microsoft in the modern landscape comes to show us that  it’s not enough for products to be beautiful on the inside. Even the best architecture and the most effective technology stack cannot stand alone. A product must also be beautiful on the outside. In the ever growing digital environment, this is where UX Design comes in.  Designers are responsible for bridging the gap between capability and effect, by orchestrating the creation of products that both meet consumers’ needs as well as do it in a manner that creates delight and wonder. These developments have created the need for a new kind of professional, who combines the skills of design and strategy with the technical ability to make their vision a reality.

Through the program, participants will be offered both the background to understand user needs and the elements that define the experience, as well as the ability to implement their ideas using Angular, one of the most popular front-end frameworks on the market.

Angular is an evolving framework used by major companies all over the world, which aims to provide a complete solution for creating modern web applications and includes features covering all major needs of a single page application (SPA) such as two-way binding, HTTP communication, routing,  styling and reactive forms.

In addition, it encourages the implementation of the MVVM (Model-View-ViewModel) architectural pattern, enabling the creation of modular and reusable code, and is based on Microsoft’s own open-source TypeScript language, which was ranked by StackOverflow as the second most beloved programming language by developers.

The program comprises a total of 80 hours of specialized theoretical and practical training via online courses, delivered over a period of 6 teaching weeks – from 28 February 2022 to 8 April 2022. The ReGeneration Academy on Web Apps UI/UX Design & Development has been designed by ReGeneration and Microsoft, with Code.Hub as training partner and academic support from the Athens Tech College. It combines introductory and advanced principles of Web Apps UX/UI Design & Development.
During the program participants will be exposed to the full process of developing a modern web application according to the latest standards and will gain extensive practical experience in topics from market analysis and design to development and publication.

 

Why to participate

Participants will get to know both the theoretical background of design and usability through topics such as Usability, Mental Models, Moments of Truth and Personas but also the practical application using tools such as Adobe XD and actions where they will be constantly guided by the respective feedback will be obtained from UX research actions.

In addition, participants will be introduced to the programming tools and the corresponding production environments with which they will implement their ideas in the context of front-end development with HTML, CSS, JavaScript using the most modern Single Page Application (SPA) standards through Angular, one of the most popular front-end frameworks.
